Crispy Sweet Potato Fries

Just FYI… I made these sweet potato fries last night and they were by far the best I’ve ever made. Struggle with getting your fries nice and crispy? The answer is corn starch! They came out sizzling and golden. The recipe is from http://www.theartofdoingstuff.com/guaranteed-crispy-sweet-potato-fries-sriracha-mayo-dip/ and is copied below:

Cut sweet potatoes up into medium-thick wedges. Let soak in water for 1-12 hours and pat dry. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 425 deg.

Add 1-2 Tbsp. cornstarch to a plastic bag. Add the (now damp) sweet potato wedges. Allow some air in and seal the top part shut, like a balloon. Shake the potatoes around until they are lightly coated with corn starch.

Spread potato fries out on a non-stick baking sheet so that they are not touching. Drizzle 1-2 Tbsp. olive oil on fries mix around on baking sheet until they are well coated. Rearrange so that they are not touching. Sprinkle with salt and sweet paprika, or any other spices you prefer, to taste.

Bake for 15 minutes, turn over fries, and bake for 5 more minutes. Finish with a light sprinkling of truffle salt and paprika, if desired.

    I’ve never done sweet potato fries but this tip makes me want to try them? Could you substitute anything for mayo in the dip?
